Skincare - Face - Bliss - that's incredi-'peel'! Glycolic Resurfacing Pads

I just repurchased these! I am in my 30s and just started investing in preventative care like glycolic acids, retin a, and the like. Chemical exfoliants ftw. I don't have much to compare these with other than the Peter Thomas Roth FirmX but I think these are way better. The pads have a lot of gel on them so I cut them in half to extend the life of the product. I also use it on my face …Read more

Masks - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque

I tried a sample of this when I was flying to Europe for work and found this to be a very nice mask for a long flight. I have very dry skin and I find it to be soothing and hydrating. I am curious to try Glossier's Moisturizing Moons Mask next to see if it's any better. I think the plus of this one is that it is effective and it's great for flights because it goes on clear so you …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - NUXE - Huile Prodigieuse (Multi-Purpose Dry Oil)

This is a product I have just recently reordered! I wish it was an all-natural product, or had an all-natural version but I love the smell so much and the results that I choose to overlook that. I have very, very dry skin all over and I just recently started using this morning and night and it is a game-changer! I'm sure you could achieve this effect with a number of natural oils like …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bliss - Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub

Meh... I wanted to love this because I am a fan of Bliss products but I thought this was kind of disappointing. The smell and taste are fine but as far as exfoliation goes I have way better luck with a clean, new toothbrush and some balm after. The Body Shop made a great one back in the day that came in a tube and was really gritty- like a superfine emery board in a tube :) This just isn't …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Smitten

5.0

Mar/28/2016

I love Revlon's balm stains and this one has that nice, popsicle stained mouth look. It's a sheer but bright berry somewhere in between raspberry and a blackberry color. I would liken it to being in between Glossier's Generation G's Crush and Jam. I enjoy this as an everyday lip color because it's a nice, translucent punch of color on my otherwise makeup-free face. It …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

Oh man, do I love this product. It's so good. I just found this particular color, brand new, never been unwrapped in a forgotten makeup case and was SO EXCITED! I love Revlon's balm stains and this one is particularly lovely. It is definitely your lips but better. It looks a lot more brownish based on the packaging but the color is more of a clay rose/mauve. I would say it would be a …Read more

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL. My can't live without it, finish the jar, have re-bought dozens of times, recommend to everyone I know, cure-all, desert-island staple. I have very dry skin and I am in constant fear of not being hydrated. I LIVE for this product. I wish they would make it in a tube and a stick so I could toss it in my purse or back pocket. The size of the jar is pretty substantial and …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2016

I will preface this by saying I have blemish-free skin with no scars and my main skin problems are dryness and the occasional redness on my cheeks. I have cool undertones with an overall pinkness.

I am someone who is foundation averse. I have never liked the feeling as it has always made me feel slightly claustrophobic, like my skin is suffocating. I also don't need heavy …

Lips - Glossier - Generation G

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2016

I am a fan of Generation G, but I think it has some flaws it could improve upon.

1. The matte, popsicle stain effect is definitely legit... however, it is a little drying and I could use a smidge more moisture. Honestly Revlon's balm stain is like the improved, less-expensive sister (especially in the Sweetheart and Smitten colors). I think this product needs to be applied over …

Praise hands emoji to Glossier for this product! I love, love this for so many reasons. It is so gentle in every way- consistency, scent, texture... Like an amped up version of Cetaphil which has been my favorite cleanser of choice. This one has the same ability to be used as a makeup remover on dry skin, or as a cleanser on wet skin. Another HUGE selling point for me was that it is completely …Read more
